      Shameless series 7
      Product information:
      Type: DVD
      Subtitles: English
      Audio Description: English
      Number of discs: 3
      Classification: 15

      Plot:
      Shameless drama which follows the rollercoaster lives of the dysfunctional families. The first series invites you to meet the Gallaghers: mum went AWOL years ago and dad Frank stayed at home with the six children, only to drink and take as much drugs a he can while the children fend for themselves . The real head of the family is big sister Fiona who is 20 years old, she looks after Carl age 10, Debbie age 11 and Liam age 3. She is occasionally helped out with looking after the younger ones by brothers Lip age 17 and Ian age 16. Overall its a series that reveals the hectic world of sexual adventures, triumphs, love, scams and crime.

      My opinion:
      I don't like the US version of this series as its just odd is the best way to describe itm but i can't get enough of the Uk verison! i have watched it since the very first episode up to the present day where they are now in there 10th series. This programme shows you what real life is like, crime, sex, drugs, alchol, teenage pregnancies, murder, suicide, incest, health problems, dissablities and much more. This programme handles some tough issues but it will also make you laugh till you cry and sometimes cry because there are some really imotional parts. I wouldn't reccomend the US version to a friend but i would definatly reccomend the UK version.

        My opinion:

        I brought these phones because i had an old cordless phone that played up quite a lot. What is really useful about these phones is they have a 1.4inch LCD screen which has an backlight which is great as I mostly get calls in the middle of the night as my great aunt is ill a lot and i am her only family. When looking for a new phone i wanted to make sure i had caller ID also becuase i have quite a lot of those phone calls trying to sell things so now if i see unknown number i know not to answer the phone. I love the fact that this phone has quite a lot of memory and can store up to 50 names and numbers which is a lot more than the last phones i had.

        I love how clearly you can hear the person you are having a conversation on these phones as with my old phones the person's voice would fade in and out. Another good thing is you don't need to stay close to the phone stand, i have been to the bottom of our garden and i can still hear as clear as if i was standing right next to the phone stand. I found very useful the fact that with these phone's I always have to phone my Mom when I am cooking because she is a great cook and i always ask her for advice, a great thing with these phones is I can use the hands free speaker phone so i can carry on cooking without having to worry about carrying a phone around the kitchen with me. This is really useful as before I was having to keep putting the phone on the side and asking my mom if she could hang on a couple of minutes, then i would do what she had instructed me to do then picked the phone back up and carry on talking to her.

        These phones are great I can't complain about them at all, i would highly reccomend these to a friend. If you want to purchase these cordless phones depending on where you buy them from and weather they are new or used they will cost you anything between £28.99 and £45.50

          love them

          I brought these shoes for my daughter because we go on holiday a lot and I thought they would be ideal for the beach. I'm so glad I did because they are great shoes! She says she loves the fact they are pink as at the moment pink is her favourite colour and she loves wearing them as they are nice and comfy. I love them because they are great for the beach as all I need to do is wipe them over or run them under the tap to clean them instead of her ruining shoes after shoes. So they save me a lot of money instead of keep having to buy new shoes and they don't take long to clean which is a bonus. To be honest she doesn't just wear them for the beach as I can't get them off her feet, she wears them to school and to play in too. They were great in the summer as they kept her feet nice and cool.

          My daughter has now started a trend as all her friends are buying them now and they are buying different colours, styles and characters so I think I know what will be on the top of her Christmas list this year, I don't mind though as they are great shoes and she is happy with them so that makes us both happy. I have not long ordered some Crocs for my son as he has not long started to walk and I have also ordered a pair each for myself and my husband. So once they arrive the whole family will be kited out with Crocs. I love the fact that they have so many different style's and coloured Croc's as I think I may have to start a little collection, I mean come on im a woman and us women do love our shoes! Don't think the husband will be to pleased about that one though, hehe!

          I have a feeling I will be buying a lot of Croc's in the future, that has just given me a great idea, it's my brothers birthday next month and he also goes on holiday a lot I think I will buy him some for his birthday as he is always moaning that he hates flip flops as they are too thin. I would highly recommend these to a friend and if you would like to purchase them depending on where you go and weather they are new or used you will be able to buy them from £6.50 to £38.47. Get buying trust me you will never look back mine have just arrived and i love them i can't take them off they are so comfortable it feels like you are walking on the clouds! They are great for the beach as if you have taken your shoes off for some reason you can just pop the Crocs on and go in the sea to wash the sand off your feet without worrying about treading on a shell and cutting your self.

          The Book:
          Author: E L James
          Paperback Pages: 592
          Type: Erotic Novel

          The plot:
          When student Ana Steele first encountered young entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a relationship of a different sort that changed both their lives. But Ana soon wanted a "normal" relationship and demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed. Now, together, they have more - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity, Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors of his past that now haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, tragedy, malice and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian's past. Fifty Shades Freed is the compelling final volume in the Fifty Shades trilogy.

          My opinion:
          The author has definatley saved the best till last! It is a great read as you feel happy for Anna as Christian has finally woke up and seen how much Anna loves him so he opens up to her and gives her the relationship she wants. But then just as you think everything is going well again something or should i say someone trys to ruin things for them, will he or she succeed is the question... I would definatly reccomend this book to a friend as again i couldn't put it down. If you would like to purchase this book depending on where you have it from and weather is is new or used the price will range from £3.19 to £14.54

          The Book:
          Author: E L James
          Paperback: 544 pages
          Type: Erotic Novel

          The plot:
          Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every day and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their relationship and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades. While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life. In the second book of the trilogy you will see how Anastasia and Christian's relationship changes for the better but when everything is going to plan someone is in the darkness ready to come out and spoil things. Fifty Shades Darker is the irresistibly addictive second part of the Fifty Shades trilogy and again you will not be able to put the book down.

          My opinion:
          I brought this book as I read Fifty Shades of Grey and loved it so i tought right i've got to get the second! I am glad I did as it is even better than the first it shows you how much Christian must love Anastasia as he wants to change how he is for her and he starts to open up more and more. You will not be able to put this book down, trust me i couldn't. I love how when reading this book you can feel and almost see the sparks of attraction fly between Christian and Anastasia. I would highly reccomed this book to a friend as it is a great read and you get so into the book that you don't want to put it down. If you woud like to purchase this book, depending on where you go and weather the book is new or used you will be able to buy it from £3.19 to £20.95

          My view on GHD Mark IV Styler Hair Straightener:
          I love my GHD Hair Straighters I have had them for 3 years now and they are still going strong, I asked my mom to buy them me for my birthday and they are the best thing I've ever asked for, I make sure they go everywhere with me even camping! I have been through a lot of straighteners because I have thick, curly, frizzy hair and none of the hair straighteners I used beforehand could keep my hair under control and make my hair look straight and smooth like I had always wanted. So I asked my hairdresser what straighteners she used on my hair as they always made my hair look amazing, she wrote the name down and I asked my mom to buy them for me. Since that day I have never looked back, they are amazing! They heat up very quickly and you will hear a beep to tell you the straighteners are hot enough to do your hair. It's lovely to have a pair of straighteners than glide across your hair and straighten it first time rather than having to keep going over the same section of hair 3 or 4 times. My hair went from being curly and frizzy to smooth and straight. There are so many different styles you can do you your hair and these straighteners make it simple to do. I also find that with these straighter that you don't even need to use any products on your hair because they make your hair look amazing on their own. Also one thing I love that came with these straighter is a heat resistant bag because with other straighteners I have brought in the past I always tend to leave them on the side or the floor to long and then I have a big burn in the carpet or on the side table. They suit most hair types and lengths and are a perfect gift. I can't believe they still work though to be honest with you because I drop them by accident loads of times but they are great. I also like the fact that if you leave them on they have a safety cut out on them because I always forget to turn them off, so it is great not having to worry about them burning anything or overheating. The next straighteners I buy will definitely have to be GHD's as I haven't found another pair of straighteners better than the one's I currently own. I would defiantly recommend these hair straighteners!

          This film was released in 2007 it is based on the 2004 novel P.s I love you by Cecelia Ahern. The film is dedicated to the memory of producer Molly Smith's sister Windland Smith Rice
          The plot:
          Holly and Gerry is a married couple who live in Manhattan, they are like most couples in love but fight occasionally. Gerry dies suddenly of a brain tumour and Holly realizes how much he means to her as well as how insignificant their arguments were. Deeply distraught, Holly withdraws from her family and friends until they all get together on her 30th birthday. They are determined to force the young widow to face the future and decide what she wants to do with her life. As they rally around Holly and help organize her apartment, a cake is delivered, and with it is a message from Gerry. It proves to be the first of several meaningful messages all ending with P.S. I Love You which he had arranged to have delivered to her after his death. Each letter fills her with encouragement and gradually helps her to move on with her life. But Holly's mother believes that Gerry's letters are keeping Holly tied to the past. But they are, in fact, pushing her into the future.

          With Gerry's words as her guide, Holly slowly embarks on a journey of rediscovery. Gerry arranged for Holly and her friends Denise and Sharon to travel to his homeland of Ireland, while there they meet William, a singer who strongly reminds Holly of her deceased husband. He then dedicates a song to her but on hearing it Holly leaves the place as it was actually Gerry's song for her. During the vacation, while on a fishing trip they get stuck in the middle of a lake without any oars to steer their boat with. While they are stranded Denise announces she's engaged and Sharon reveals that she is pregnant, but the news causes Holly to relapse emotionally and again withdraw into herself. They are eventually rescued by William and he decides to go back to theirs to have some drinks and a meal. That night William and Holly have sex and after Holly tells him about Gerry's family when William finds it funny as he is actually Gerry's childhood friend. Holly then starts to freak out but William soon calms her down when he suggests he tells her stories about his and Gerry's childhood. The next day Holly visits Gerry's parents and while there she also receives a letter from Gerry reminding her of their first meeting.

          When Holly returns to Manhattan she eventually enrols in a fashion course and discovers that she has a flair for designing women's shoes. This boosts her confidence and allows her to emerge from her solitude and embrace her friends' happiness. While on a walk with her mother, she learns that her mother helped Jerry with his letters and how they would get to Holly after his death. After a heart to heart with her mother Holly takes her mother on a trip to Ireland and it appears that Holly is accepts that she can move on with her life and that it doesn't mean that she will ever forget Gerry. Holly and her Mom finally abandons there fears of falling in love again.

          What I think about the film:
          I love this film, I have it on DVD and I watch it at least once a month. In my opinion this film shows you that life can take so many turns and that you shouldn't believe that "it will never happen to me", as you can see in this film you never know what lies around the corner so you should live life to the full and make sure you cherish the time you have with the people around you because one day they won't be there. I have personal experience with this when my dad was diagnosed with cancer and who sadly passed away on the 24th August 2009. I think this film has done a really good job of portraying how grief can affect someone because it shows you that not everyone deals with death in the same way and that you go on a big emotional roller coaster. I would highly recommend this film but I do suggest you get the tissues ready.

          You can buy this film on DVD from a range of different places prices may vary and it depends on whether you want to buy it new or used, but you can get it from £3.56 - £11.18

          About the Film:
          The film starts with a family getting ready for the funeral of Edward Barnes, a beloved father, husband, brother, uncle and friend. Aaron is the oldest son of the deceased so he has organised the funeral at the family home and is writing the eulogy, much to everyone's surprise because they all thought Ryan, Aaron's younger brother who happens to be a bestselling author should do it. But it seems like Aaron has had to do everything, even pay for the funeral.
          The funeral doesn't get off to the best of starts and everything goes wrong, first the funeral home delivers the wrong body, then the niece of the deceased Elaine gives her fiancé Oscar a Valium from her brother's apartment, not knowing her brother is actually dealing drugs and it turns out its not Valium its LSD so the fiancé arrives at the funeral wildly stoned, Aaron's younger brother, Ryan, a successful writer, flies in from New York broke but arrogant, one uncle is angry over his daughter's choice of boyfriends, and the other is cranky and coarse. Then to top it all off there is the ovulating wife of Aaron who wants to get pregnant and it just so happens that the funeral is the last day of her cycle so she wants Aaron to have sex with her. There is the jealous ex-boyfriend of Elaine who is causing trouble for her and a short stranger who wants a word with Aaron because his father had some skeletons in his closet.
          My opinion:
          This film is great! I was having a pretty rubbish day so my friend let me borrow this film on DVD and she said it would cheer me up. I put the film on and I couldn't stop laughing, I even had tears rolling down my cheeks. The humour in this film is my kind of thing and it definitely cheered me up, next day I went online and brought it on DVD and now whenever I'm on a downer I watch this film and without fail it always makes me feel better. I love the characters in this film to because they all work well together making the film a proper comedy. There is so much going wrong in the film which is comical that you forget that they have gathered for a funeral. I mean this film should be a sad film because it's about being at a funeral but it's not, the film shows you that just because it's a funeral don't mean things are going to run smoothly, because life is not all plain sailing there is always twists and turns along the way. I would highly recommend this film to a friend as you will be in fits of laughter. The only thing I didn't like about this film is at the start it is quite boring and then there are a couple of bits as the film went on where I was bored again. The best way I can explain this film is the comical bits are great but when there isn't anything comical it's like the film just goes dry and boring. I found my mind started to wonder off at these points in the film. I love all the comical bits but all in all when there is no laughter the film doesn't live up to much.
          You can buy this DVD from a rage of places and depending on weather you want to buy the DVD used or new the price will range anything from £1.97 - £12.77

            About the film:
            Its summer and 17 year old Frances AKA Baby is taking a vacation with her family a resort in the Catskill Mountains. While there Baby develops a crush on the resort's dance instructor Johnny Castle. One night she is invited to one of their secret after hour's parties and she observes "dirty dancing" for the first time. She is intrigued by the dance and receives a brief lesson from Johnny. Later, Baby discovers that Johnny's dance partner Penny Johnson is pregnant by Robbie Gould, the womanising waiter who also happens to be dating Baby's sister Lisa. Baby learns that Robbie doesn't plan to help Penny pay for an abortion so Baby asks her father for the money to pay for Penny's illegal abortion, her farther agrees to give her the money despite her not wanting to tell him why she needs it. In her efforts to help, Baby also becomes Penny's substitute dancer for a performance at a nearby resort where Johnny and Penny perform annually. The upcoming show requires Johnny teach Baby the required routine.

            Baby becomes Johnny's pupil in dancing; as they become closer romance is in the air. Their performance at the nearby resort goes reasonably well, though Baby is too nervous to complete the dance by doing lift at the end. When Baby and Johnny return to the resort they are staying at, they learn that Penny's back street abortion was botched, leaving her in agonizing pain. Baby goes to her father for help, but her father jumps to conclusions thinking that Johnny impregnated Penny. After Baby's father saves Penny's life he forbids his daughter from having anything to do with Johnny or his friends. However Baby defies him and sneaks out to visit Johnny in his room that same night where they dance and make love.
            When Johnny is accused of stealing a wallet from one of the resort guests and is unable to provide an alibi, his and Baby's relationship is revealed when to save Johnny from being fired Baby confesses to her father that Johnny could not have been responsible, as she was with him in his cabin that night. Johnny is eventually cleared of the theft but he is still fired for becoming involved with one of the guessed which is against staff policy.

            At the final talent show of the season, Baby and Lisa's father gives Lisa's boyfriend Robbie a letter of recommendation for medical school. Robbie then confesses to getting Penny pregnant and then insults her in the process, therefore leading Lisa's father to angrily snatch the letter back. Then to everyone's surprise Johnny returns to the resort after being fired to perform the final dance of the season with Baby. Criticizing the Housemans for their choice of Baby's seat at the table, Johnny says "Nobody puts Baby in a corner," as he takes her hand and leads her onstage, interrupting the show which is already in progress. After Johnny makes a brief speech about how Baby has made him a better man, he and Baby wow the audience with a stunning dance performance which this time ends with Baby doing the lift successfully for the first time. After the dance Baby's dad apologizes to Johnny and admits that he was wrong about Penny's pregnancy and praise's Baby for her dancing.
            My opinion:
            I think this film is amazing, it shows you that popular people and less popular people do fall in love sometimes. We need to stop stereotyping people it doesn't matter how much money a person has, what they look like, where they come from or what other people might say or think if they saw you together. All that matters is you like each other and you treat each other right. This film is a great romance because it shows you how you can go from not noticing or liking someone to falling for them. From my point of view this film also sends out a message, if you want to do something don't be shy, don't worry about what people think, have the confidence to do what you want to do as you only live once so make the most of it. In my opinion this film is great for a good old girly night in with a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates or a romantic night in cuddled up on the sofa with your significant other. I would definitely recommend this film to a friend.

            You can buy this film on DVD from a range of different stores and depending on weather you would like to purchase it brand new or used prices range anything from £2.49 to £15
